Question 3: (ILAC 1 of 2)

Keith and Patti lived in Sussex, England, with their two daughters. Keith worked in the music industry and Patti as a hairdresser. Patti's only living relative is her wealthy 85 year old grandmother, Trudy, who moved into an apartment on the Gold Coast in Australia in 2016. Trudy greatly missed her great-grandchildren and in 2018 wrote to Patti and Keith asking them to leave Sussex and come and live at the Gold Coast so she could be close to them and their children. She said she would buy them a large family home, right on the beach, and pay for all their living expenses until Keith and Patti found new jobs. While Keith had a good job, Patti's career was going nowhere, so based on Trudy's offer the family sold their home, quit their jobs and moved to Australia. 

The whole family lived in Trudy's large apartment while they tried to find a suitable place of their own. Unfortunately, Trudy and the family fought day and night. Trudy did not get on with the girls, now teenagers, and in a rage threw the whole family out of her apartment and told them she would not buy them a home after-all. The family moved out of Trudy's apartment and rented a house at Nerang.

Keith and Patti want to know if they can force Trudy to honour her promise to buy them a home and to pay for their living expenses until they find jobs.

Answer:

Issue:

Identify the questions (legal issues) which need to be resolved. Phrase it as a legal question that you are going to use to answer the problem. 

·      Hints for students:  

  • In order to answer this question and the next question, you need to think about Elements 1 and 2 which were discussed in Lecture 2.

o  In this case, the issue (legal question) should discuss whether there was an enforceable contractual relationship between the parties. Try to use the parties' names in the legal question.

Issue: 


Law:

List the names of the supporting cases and a brief summary of the relevant legal principle here.

·      Hints for students: 

o  For contract law hypotheticals, legislation will not apply. For our purposes, most of contract law is based on the common law.

o  To help you identify the relevant law, you should consider:

  • What type of law is involved here?
  • What is the specific part of the law that is in question?
  • Who is asking you for advice (ie. Who is your client)? 
  • What is the case that will support your client's argument?
  • Are there any cases that may be adverse to your client's argument?

 

Law:

 

 

Application/Analysis/Argument:

Apply the legal principles identified in the "Law" section to the facts of the question.

·      Hints for students: 

o  Explain how the cases (identified in the "Law" section above) apply to this scenario. Treat it like a short essay, supporting your argument by using the cases. 

 

Application:




  Conclusion:

State what the court is likely to decide, and what remedies would be ordered (if any).

·      Hints for students: 

o  Come to a conclusion of what you think the court is likely to decide based on the cases discussed in your application.

o  Do not 'sit on the fence', you must try to make a firm conclusion ie.  What is the likely outcome?

o  A good way to start your conclusion would be: 'On the balance of probabilities, it is likely that.....'

o  Give a brief summary of how you applied the legal principles to answer the legal question that you raised in the "Issue" section.

Conclusion:
